Launch of Kaguya Spacecraft – Sept 2007

Cherilynn Morrow was part of a NASA delegation standing with JAXA scientists and engineers at the remote Tanegashima Space Center on 14 September 2007 to observe the launch of Japan’s Kaguya spacecraft to the Moon. She provided a guest blog for the Planetary Society of near real-time events leading up to and including the launch. The link to this blog is being restored. Meanwhile enjoy a glorious Earthrise recorded by Kaguya’s HD camera.
